Mini Implants Are Efficient and Less Invasive

Have you ever caught yourself holding back a smile because of embarrassment over missing teeth? Maybe you’ve been avoiding certain foods or have had difficulty being understood in conversation. If so, you’re not alone. Losing teeth is more common than you’d think, and one of the leading causes is decay. In the U.S., 1 in 4 adults has untreated cavities, which can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. Tooth loss is an issue that doesn’t just affect your self-confidence but also makes everyday activities like eating and speaking more difficult. Here at Tampa Bay Mini Dental Implant Solutions, we understand these struggles. That’s why Dr. Cabrera is an advocate for mini implants—a restorative solution that fixes your smile without breaking the bank.

What Are Mini Implants?

Mini Implants in Tampa, FL | Dr. Cabrera | Free ConsultationIn essence, mini dental implants are exactly what they sound like—a smaller version of traditional dental implants. But they’re so much more than that. Mini implants consist of a sleek titanium rod, about the width of a toothpick, but with the strength to support a crown, bridge, or denture with ease. Their small size allows Dr. Cabrera to place them in tight spaces and in patients with reduced jawbone density, making them more accessible to a wider audience.

Another significant benefit of mini implants is that they can often be placed and crowned in a single visit. In contrast, traditional implants require months of recovery time as the implant fuses with the jawbone. Mini implants also require fewer appointments and less recovery time, and that translates to a more cost-effective process from beginning to end. While those are already great reasons to choose mini implants, the benefits they offer don’t stop there.

Why Mini Implants Are the Superior Choice

The magic of mini implants is that they merge strength with simplicity, proving that good things come in small packages.

  1. Instant results: Because it’s possible to place and crown mini implants in the same visit, you can walk in for your procedure and walk out the same day with a brand new smile!
  2. Less invasive, faster recovery: The tiny hole required to place a mini implant is about the size of a toothpick and roughly half the width of a traditional implant. Most patients are back to their normal routines within 24-48 hours.
  3. Extremely versatile: Mini implants can be used in all types of tooth restorations, from dental bridges and crowns to dentures of all types. Additionally, their smaller size and reduced impact on the jawbone make them suitable for a broader range of patients.
  4. Better durability: The single-piece titanium design of mini implants makes them exceptionally strong and eliminates spaces where bacteria can accumulate. Should they ever need to be replaced (which is unlikely with proper care), the process is also more straightforward compared to traditional implants.

The Process of Getting Mini Implants

Placing mini implants is a simple process that starts with a consultation. During the consultation, Dr. Cabrera will assess your teeth and mouth and determine your tooth loss needs. You will also discuss your medical history, share your dental goals, and ask questions you have. Dr. Cabrera will then tailor a personalized treatment plan for you, utilizing mini implants as the foundation.

On the day of the procedure, Dr. Cabrera will numb your teeth and gums using local anesthetic to ensure your comfort. She will then drill a small hole into the jawbone and screw the implants into place. Because of the minimally invasive placement, there’s no need to wait weeks to heal. Dr. Cabrera can install a temporary restoration immediately.

If you experience any discomfort after the placement procedure, you can use ice packs and over-the-counter pain relievers. However, you should be feeling back to your normal self within a day or two. Once the dental lab finishes crafting your custom restoration, typically within two weeks, Dr. Cabrera will replace the temporary restoration with the newly crafted one, securing it onto your implants.
